Most E60's only make 430ish at the wheels

Wasn`t being funny Carl, like you said nothing else to write.

430 at the wheels sounds about right, couple that to a 7spd box and a higher rev limit `tho and it really does make a huge difference. Around 450 wheel hp is needed in an E46 M3 to beat the E60 M5 in a straight line drag.

thats absolute madness.

SO even though its lighter and has more torque with your car an E46 M3 needs 450whp with the big torque figure it will have too (due to F/I) to beat an M5.

A S/C M3 running simillar hp to the V10 will have a very simillar Torque output. Max power with a S/C is at max RPM, not like a Turbo.

M5 are awesome. As is the M6..I will have one in couple years. I LOVE how they accelerate.

I went down this private road while back at 120 and then went out in m5 at 144
